Welcome to Pant Memorial Hall

Hall closed under lockdown

The hall is currently closed to hirers except for very limited circumstances. These exceptions are detailed on gov.uk – we are of course happy to help if these circumstances apply. The government ‘roadmap’ currently indicates that we will not be opening before 12th April 2021. We await further advice which (as always) is subject to change. Here’s hoping!

In the meantime – please join us for our 99th Annual General Meeting, which will be held via zoom on Thursday March 11th at 7pm.

Click on this link to find out more about the AGM. It doesn’t take long, there is (of course) no charge and even though we can’t provide tea this time, we’d love to see people taking an interest in what is going on.

The committee continue to maintain and monitor the building, and we are still contactable by all the usual routes. Please follow us on facebook (feed repeated at the bottom of this page) or check back here for updates. We still have things to talk about and we are still working for the hall.

Admire our ever changing flowers if you are passing, stay safe and well and we will see you (again) on the other side.

How to support the hall during lockdown (at no cost to you)

A closed hall means no income – but it doesn’t mean that outgoings stop. All the management is done by unpaid volunteers, but we still have costs to keep the building maintained. We’d really appreciate it if you could consider these ways to support us, especially at the moment. All at no cost to you and while staying at home!

  • inkjet printer cartridge recycling: please save your used cartridges for our collection box. This will be sent to Recycle4charity which generates funding for us (and keeps the cartridges out of landfill). We need a minimum of 15 cartridges for the box; if you have that many, you can order your own box (free both ways!) via the link above. Otherwise, please hold on to them and contact us after lockdown when we can arrange to meet.
  • Giveasyoulive; shop as normal and generate funding for us by following this link. Just click ‘shop and raise’ for access to thousands of retailers.
  • Amazon smile: follow this link if you are shopping with Amazon and we will receive 0.5%.
  • Ebay sales: if you donate part (or all!) of the sale price to our charity, the ebay fee will reduce in proportion.

Our charity number is 240435, and our official name is ‘Pant Memorial Institute’. Thank you so much for supporting us (or any other charity)
